Unfortunately, the law doesn't always do its job......is this an effective resource for you, AC?

I feel so sorry for that little girl.
Call CPS and report them yourself. You can do that anonymously. Call the cops if you suspect violence is going on, and try to find a way to move.

I sympathize. I really do. I was the exact situation at my last apartment, except he was abusive to her. But luckily for both of us she came to her senses and left his sorry ass.

Call the police everytime! My first apartment, we (other neighbors and myself) called 911, it seemed nightly, on this couple for violent fights. In the end, he murdered her while she was sleeping. Their one year old daughter was in the next room. They start raising their voices, smoking pot, call the police, I wouldn't hesitate for a minute!

The father/landlord is a waste of time, I am sure he knows what his son is doing and obviously isn't going to stop it.

See my thing is, if I go to the landlord with this list of complaints and they happen to say something to their son, I would be almost expecting them to retaliate against me. I've never had any direct involvement with them, but from what I've witnessed (because my bedroom is right next to where they usually congregate) they just seem like the type. I did the CPS thing and plan on calling the cops everytime something goes down (not just stupid stuff). But I am going to call the landlord and tell them I am sensitive to smoke and that WHATEVER it is they are smoking is drifting in. If they ask me to elaborate on what I mean by whatever, I'll simply say "sometimes it's cigarettes and sometimes it's something else, I don't know exactly what" and play dumb. Hopefully that will get the message across without leading to a confrontation.
Okay, so now I'm worried, I'm afraid the neighbors and the landlord will know or suspect it's me that reported them to CPS. What should I do if they come confront me and ask if it was me? I mean we are really close around other people too, so it could have been any one of them, or the cops for that matter. I just don't want this to backfire on me by them kicking me out or whatever. Has anyone ever reported someone to CPS and they said anything to you?

If you didn't already, tell the police you wish to remain anonymous.

If you need to call them again, tell them you wish to remain anonymous, and don't give them your name or address, just tell them you're a neighbor. I've never had a problem doing this.

You're smart to take steps to avoid retaliation. Your lease may protect you from actually being kicked out, but you still have to live there until this is resolved.
